Tune-Ups to Help Your Toyota Camry Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 1986 Toyota Camry’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Camry’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Toyota for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Camry’s engine running smoother, longer.

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Toyota Camry engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Camry's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1986 Toyota Camrys

  • When should Toyota Camry spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Camry? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Toyota Camry engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
